2019. Also waiting for Audi to release the cars as they have a lot of 2018. The particular car arrived at Halifax in October and is now at Montreal, so I was told max January.

*Honestly*.

Now, you have a ZF8 in your nice B9 S4, which Audi chose over the B8 S4's DCT. You feel that you the S-Tronic was somehow better? There is no objective data to support that.

Drove a Lexus ES350 F-Sport 2019 yesterday.

If it wouldn't be for that generic exterior styling, I liked it, but not enough to make divert from plan A. Great engine too. Not even a turbo-gadget.

That only shows how Acura takes care of the whiners and how they trust their product. Valid for old ZF9, not valid for recent ones which has no issue, despite the vain efforts of the trolls.

Because it is not related at all.... ZF8 shifts no faster than the ZF 6HP in 2006. It is the same typical 150-200ms it was 12 years ago. And the ZF9 is directly derived from that 6HP.

Point taken. :thumbsup:

2.xToy should be reserved to 4-cyl. reference only. The V6 2.7T is a very decent engine, better balanced than the Ecoboost 3.5 if you are not looking for ultimate power.
